Suitable for Garage sockets

Is the cable okay to use for a ring circuit in a detached garage?
Asked by: Fidge73
Thank you for contacting Prysmian. This cable is used throughout the UK in domestic installations for ring circuits. Further guidance can be found in Appendix 15 of BS7671. We would advise that if this is a new circuit, it needs to be connected by a Part P Electrician.

Cable?

Whats the currant capability of this cable been a while sinse I bought cable used to 45 amp 15 amp and so on is this more euro madness?
Asked by: AlanTheBraw
It depends on installation method. 2.5 T&E is commonly used for 32Amp ring main but if used for a radial circuit please refer to the wiring regs table 4D5 giving 6 different methods. E.G Clipped direct Max 27Amps (recommended for lengths up to 12m due to volt drop of up to 2.5%) In loft covered by more than 100mm insulation, Max 17Amps (recommended for lengths up to 19m)
